Why stay here ...

Tafarn y Waen is an 18th century Inn, restored and renovated to offer a cosy and traditional retreat, set within the rolling hills of the Clwydian range. Easily accessed. From Junction 28 from the A55 main expressway through North Wales. Take the road towards Trefnant. We are located 5 minutes’ drive along that road. We have a large car park in front of our main building and our landscaped paddock with a gravelled track, semi hard-standing pitches and electric hook-ups are located at the bottom of the car park. Turn into our car park via our large gateway and we’ll get you sorted.

The Waen is a countryside and farmland locality on the outskirts of St Asaph and less than a mile from the A55 main expressway. St Asaph (which has city status) is home to a beautiful Cathedral, and lovely walks along the River Elwy.

There is a co-op and Londis, for provisions, as well as restaurants and cafes. The larger towns of Rhyl and Prestatyn with retail parks and supermarkets are about 10-15 minutes’ drive. Llandudno seaside town 20-25 minutes’ drive but the nearest beach is less than 15 minutes’ drive.

We are located at edge of the villages Tremerchion and Rhuallt, areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Within easy reach of Snowdonia but also only half an hour’s drive from the historic walled city of Chester.

Escape the hustle and bustle of daily life, surrounded by fields and farmland. In the middle of nowhere but a stone’s throw from the road to everywhere.

Our location provides an ideal base for your holiday or break. We are on a cycle route to the historic town of Ruthin. The public footpaths of the 'Pilgrims Way' and the 'Clwydian Way' pass by our front door. The renowned 'walkers' path of the 'Offas Dyke' is within easy reach.

Our site is an ideal base, central to so many of the things that North Wales has to offer. The World Heritage site of Conwy. The lovely Isle of Anglesey. The amazing Snowdonia National Park, and the beautiful North Wales coast. Drive in the opposite direction on the A55 expressway, for less than half an hour, and you will reach the ancient Roman city of Chester with its black and white shopping rows and the famous Chester Zoo (There is even the UK's largest designer shopping outlet, nearby).

We are not a pub as such but have a very traditional communal lounge/ dining room and private bar. Enjoy an early evening glass of wine on the settees by our log burner fire or at our outside tables. We can prepare you a cooked breakfast if you would like, so long as you pre-order the night before, and even a limited menu of early evening light bites. Otherwise we can help you find some fabulous places to visit and eat, locally.

We are a relaxed and friendly establishment and never far away if you need assistance.

Looking forward to meeting you.
Elaine and Pete

Lovely stay

Tafarn Y Waen
We stayed with our young daughter recently. The site was very easy to find and nicely laid out. The owners checked up regularly that everything was ok. Very peaceful surroundings and a great base for visiting North Wales and across to Chester. Our daughter enjoyed looking at tadpoles in the pond. We also took up the offer of breakfast at the inn one morning and it was delicious. Would definitely stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was beautifully landscaped. Access was easy, pitches were spacious and views of the pond and surrounding countryside were great. All trouble-free and relaxing. Thank you,

A great new CL

Tafarn Y Waen
Visited over the Easter BH weekend whilst visiting family near by. Approx half mile from the A55 with easy access through double gates on to a large car park. I was greeted by both the owners, Elaine and Pete, who were doing some maintenance on the CL site. Both were very welcoming and easy to get on with. All the pitches are easily accessed via a gravel track around the site. 16A EHU to each pitch with a single fresh water tap near the entrance with grey water and black waste points. Due to being preoccupied with family, I didn't utilize the on site facilities thus unable to comment although others staying on site did recommend them as very good. This CL is very new but Elaine and Pete have created a lovely site close to all the tourist attractions whilst being nicely separate and much quieter for it. I highly recommend this site and fully intend to return when next in the area.

Excellent Cl

Tafarn Y Waen
We spent 4 peaceful nights at Tafarn Y Waen with our caravan .It is a new Cl but is already looking well established with its landscaping and duck pond .The owners Elaine and Pete who were very pleasant and helpful also keep the guest house on the site which was formerly the Farmers Arms .The toilets which are in the guest house are immaculate and are open when the guest house is open .Breakfast and evening meals are available and we enjoyed a very nice and reasonably priced evening meal during our stay We will certainly make a return visit to the Cl . Many thanks for making our stay so enjoyable Ann & Ray

Enjoyable stay

Tafarn Y Waen
We spent four nights at this peaceful CL in late March. Elaine and Pete made us very welcome and were on hand if any help was required. We enjoyed watching the bird life especially the ducks on the pond. An added bonus was the meal we enjoyed - delicious. The site has easy access to the North Wales coast. We hope to return soon.
